Virtela, a managed network, security and cloud services provider, says it has extended its automation and predictive analytics platforms to the company's managed IT infrastructure services for virtualized data centers and private clouds.

The vendor says the newly-integrated technologies will give enterprises faster provisioning for their virtualized infrastructure, and identification and resolution of a majority of data center network issues before they affect quality of service.

Customers of Virtela's managed data center/private cloud services can now leverage predictive analytics technology, called VirtelaPredict, which diagnoses more than 95% of potential data center network and security issues before they can impact operational performance.

By speeding resolution of issues or avoiding them altogether, the service allows organizations to achieve a reduction in data center downtime while reducing support and operating costs, the company says.

Beyond predictive analytics, Virtela's IT Infrastructure Management services encompass network discovery, compliance and other capabilities designed to drive IT efficiencies. These include VirtelaDiscover, which automates network device and topology discovery, analysis and optimization; and VTerm, which provides authentication, authorization and audit services to centrally control and regulate access to all network devices.

Virtela's systems and expertise are aimed at helping enterprises overcome a key inhibitor in the transition to next-generation data centers, the complexity associated with deploying and managing virtualized or cloud environments, said Ron Haigh, vice president of cloud architecture and services, in a statement.

"Virtela speeds and simplifies the ongoing operation of these highly scalable environments while protecting customers' current infrastructure investments,” Haigh said.
